To better serve you, please keep these tips in mind:
  • Services are provided on a walk-in basis only. There is no appointment needed to visit the laboratory.
  • Scripts must be dropped off, faxed, or emailed two business days prior to visit.
  • Standing (multiple visit) scripts must be called in and activated two business days prior to visit.
  • Orders MUST contain: Patient’s name, date of birth, the provider’s name and signature, and the provider’s fax number.
  • All patients must have a valid test order prior to collection. Test orders by the Luke MTF are valid for 60 days.
  • A copy of the test results will be faxed to an off-base provider after completion. Please provide a fax number and email of your provider when sending in lab requests.
  • For fasting labs, please do not eat or drink (water is allowed) for 8-12 hours before you visit the lab. Unless the provider gives other instructions, patients should continue taking their medications, as prescribed, prior to having blood drawn.

  • Please be prepared to provide a urine specimen.
  • Pending labs can be reviewed by checking your MHS GENESIS Patient Portal prior to coming to the laboratory.
